Best deal around By Stephen on 1/25/12

Everything worked out of the box. Took off a star because this, and everything from Digital Aquatics has horrible documentation available with it. Its a crap shoot to figure everything out, and going on the forums and asking other owners is the best way to learn how to do that. To me, this constitutes a poor effort of QC on the part of DA. The product does work great. On a side note, if I had to do everything all over again, I would have opted out of the SL1 included, and instead got an SL2, since I do not does ozone, so do not need to monitor it, but would prefer the salinity monitor that comes with the SL2. An RJ-11 (6 prong) splitter is a must if you wish to have it constantly hooked to the computer. DA does not have any, but you can locate them online if you search for them.

Great product for the money, i was originally put off by using a controller because it seemed so complicated to program. Then i learned that the RK can be hooked up to a laptop to program each outlet very easily, i was sold. Works great price isnt bad either

I wish I handn't wasted my time and money on this controller. It almost killed all my coral twice and the suport for this controller is a waste of time. After asking you what you did wrong and asking you to reprogram it three or four times you might get to mail it back at your own expence just to get the same thing you had to start with. Mine had lost of things that didnt work with it.To save time Here is a list of thing that might not work with this controller.
and more or less anything else with a plug.
Do a search on RKL outlet not working and read on
Save $$$$$$ on Equipment and Disaters By Adam on 10/20/11

I had No idea how valuable controllers were until I installed them. This not only prevents problems from happening in your tank but saves hundreds in single purpose controllers, timers, undertank clutter and test kits. The only 2 problem I have now are a box of about $400 of equipment I don't need anymore and I get to play in my tank less...Great product for beginner to advanced reefers!

Amazing controller and can't beat the price! By Aaron on 9/30/11

It's amazing how much the RKL can do, and now its hard to imagine how i ever managed without it. My only complaint would be the 4 module limit on the rkl, I only have one module on it right now, but i do plan to add more in the future, and it would be nice to have more expandability without having to get the elite.

The RKL is a great product. It is easily expandable and simple to set up. I have mine hooked up to my 75g system. Right now im just running all my lights and heater of the system. I also added the net module which was a little hard to get set up but provide great functionality if you need to check on you tank if your out of town etc. Overall I think this is a great starter controller. My recommendation would be spend the extra cash and get the mid level package.
Does its job By Jim on 9/4/11

Right now I'm using it to control the heaters, fans, and ato. Before I had the RKL on my tank my temperatures would fluctuate between 78* and 81*, now that I have the RKL on my tank the temperatures stay within 1/2 of a degree of 77.9*. Also topping off my tank was a nightmare due to loosing around a gallon a day from evaporation, now I just fill up the bucket every 3-4 days. It does its job really well and its also the cheapest controller on the market other than making an arduino diy controller. There's only one thing that bugged me when I got my RKL and that was the serious lack of an instruction manual.
Controls your stuff
Can protect your tank from heater malfunction
No instruction manual
Nothing else yet

Because I’m knew to the hobby I did not know if I needed a controller, but because I live in Nevada and electrify being not so cheap I had to put in a chiller on my system or keep the house cooler I think we know the answer. So I called the guys at BRS and they hooked me up with the RKL basic and now it runs my whole system this unit is awesome thanks again to the guys at BRS
